It’s easy, just fill in your registration number, and postcode in the spaces provided above then click “get your guaranteed price now”.


If you’re happy with your scrap car quote, accept the offer, fill in your contact details and one of or ATF’s will contact you within the hour (during normal working hours) to arrange a collection to suit you.


When the driver arrives provide him with your I.D., hand him the V5 log book for him to fill in, sign and date. You send section 9 (the yellow portion) of the V5 to DVLA and the driver takes the rest in order to issue a certificate of destruction (COD) if you’ve requested one.

The driver will organise payment for your scrap car either immediately by cheque, or bank transfer when the vehicle arrives back at the ATF.


We guarantee that the price paid to you for your scrap car will be the price that was quoted to you, and accepted on our website.
